Enough already with the jpgs and e-mail forwards proclaiming that people on welfare should have to take a pee test to get their checks. Even if you think it is ethically right (and it’s not), it’s completely impractical. Do you know how much money that would cost the taxpayer?!?! Study after study has proven that it’s a huge waste of money for the private sector. Although, psychologically, it’s probably worth it to companies like Wal*Mart who love to intimidate their employees. But for actually saving costs lost due to drug and alcohol use? Not worth it by a landslide.
So, please people, get off your high horses, and think things through for once.
